Main motivation is work – the move has been proposed by my husband’s company. I’ve always been fascinated by China (last great frontier kind of stuff) but just never managed to get there. But to be honest the timing isn’t quite right. As a family, I don’t think we’re done with Dubai yet and I would like to stay on a bit longer if I could as the kids are settled and doing well in school and we have made some great friends. I love that they are mixing with so many different cultures and religions here. There is so much incidental/experiential learning that happens that way.

If it was just my husband and I, it would be a no brainer, I would happily jump across to Shanghai, but it is my boy’s medical problems that is making me reticent. We said an outright “no” to Shanghai about 7 years’ ago for this reason, but he is now 7 years’ older, as is Shanghai 7 years’ more developed, so looking at it more seriously this time. I guess that’s it in a nutshell.
